Category Landscape Rock
Super easy to maintain, river rock is a highly versatile and instantly appealing landscaping material. The rich variety of textures, colors, and natural characteristics of these decorative stones also allow for many possibilities with related features and elements. If you’re still in the process of fine-tuning your landscape design plans, here’s what we think can look good with river rocks.

Seasonal Flowers & Plants

Mulch has to be replaced with each new growing season, so it can be a bit of a pain to maintain. River rock can be used as a long-term substitute for mulch around your preferred seasonal plants. Just make sure to place durable landscaping fabric down first. These decorative rocks also look really good when combined with colorful flowers, such as:

• Marigolds of varying hues of yellow and gold
• Geraniums, which come in a dazzling array of colors and species
• Zinnias if you prefer vibrant colors to provide contrast for your river rocks
• Begonias and petunias, which are also available in many different colors

Evergreen Shrubs & Trees

River rock always looks great regardless of what’s going on with the weather, so you may prefer to use it around living things with the same ability. We’re talking about evergreens here. These are trees and shrubs that continue to produce leaves and needles year-round. You may prefer to combine a choice such as polished black river rock with evergreens around the front of your home or near entryways to maintain a consistent appearance throughout the year.

Pavers & Gravel

If you have areas already covered with landscaping pavers or gravel, river rocks such as snow white pebbles can be used to create an attractive contrast. Another option is to use river rocks as a border in areas filled in with pavers or gravel.

Backyard Fountains

Water features such as fountains can enhance the overall aesthetics of a backyard space. River rock works well with fountains by serving as a bridge to the surrounding grass. You can even pile these stones around the fountain in a decorative way or create a rock-based stairway.

Driveway Cement

It doesn’t have to be one or the other with cement and river rock, at least when we’re talking about driveways. What you can do is combine these two materials by blending river rock in with cement. The result is added durability with an appealing visual addition to the surface area. You can do the same thing with cement for sidewalks and walkways on your property.

Grass or Artificial Turf

While certainly appealing, green areas can be somewhat mundane if there’s not too much visual contrast in your exterior spaces. What you can do in situations like this is use river rock to create borders or incorporate various patterns around areas with grass. This also applies to artificial turf meant to mimic the look of real grass.

Other Rocks & Stones

River rock also works well with many other stones, beach pebbles, and decorative rocks. In fact, it’s really easy to mix and match with either what you already have in place or any other landscaping stones and decorative rocks that catch your eye.
